Using Crestron infiNET EX® wireless protocol, the Baldwin Keyless Entry deadbolt locks with Home Connect can receive commands and even communicate with the other devices through the Crestron control system. As a result, homeowners can lock and unlock doors from anywhere in the house using a Crestron touch screen or a mobile device screen, or remotely --even halfway across the world -- using the Crestron mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
What's more, homeowners can set schedules, and personalize access to the home, allowing anyone with an access code to create a customized home-control scenario. For example, when the door is locked or unlocked, the Crestron system can simultaneously turn lights on/off, adjust shades and temperature, and set the alarm. Homeowners can also give access to each family member or guest utilizing their own unique user code, allowing the homeowner to monitor system activity. The system can also monitor the overall lock state and battery status of the Baldwin lock.
A Crestron Connected™ device is recognized natively by the Crestron processor and allows for full control capabilities out-of-the-box with the use of the Baldwin module. The Crestron Connected initiative embeds Crestron control intelligence into a wide selection of third-party source equipment and display devices such as projectors, displays, and audio/video receivers to operate seamlessly with Crestron control technologies. The cloud-based framework enables plug-and-play connectivity for any Crestron Connected devices.
"The addition of the Baldwin Keyless Entry deadbolt lock with Home Connect Technology to our portfolio of Crestron Connected devices is a significant step for customers of both companies," said Steve Samson, Crestron Director of Business Development. "In conjunction with our control systems, the Baldwin locks provide homeowners with a powerful home automation solution. The combination of convenience, security, and design aesthetics make the Crestron Connected device a must-have in the smart home."
Keith Brandon, Baldwin's Director of Residential Access Solutions, said, "One of our primary objectives with our luxury market-leading Baldwin products is to partner with the most respected entities in the home automation arena, in order to provide our customers with the best possible home control experience. Our new partnership with Crestron unquestionably achieves that goal."
